February 6, 2013

WURTSBORO, NY — Join the Delaware Highlands Conservancy for a snowshoe hike at the Bashakill Wildlife Management Area on Saturday, February 9 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., with a wine tasting following the hike.
Learn about the ecology, culture and history of the area with Melinda Meddaugh, land protection coordinator for the conservancy, and Mike Medley, president of the Bashakill Area Association. The lands and waters of the Bashakill are home to a great variety of plants and wildlife, including eagles.

The snowshoe hike will begin at the South Road Boat Launch along the Bashakill O & W trail, directly across from the Bashakill Vineyards at 1131 South Rd. Visit www.TrailKeeper.org to learn more about the trail, view a map and print directions.

Remember to dress warmly and bring water. All family members are welcome, but all participants must provide their own snowshoes. If there is no snow, there will be a winter hike.

The snowshoe hike and wine tasting is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
